*Chris Brown is scheduled to perform in Stockholm, Sweden on Nov. 19, and some folks are not happy about it, having refused to forget that he once beat up Rihanna.
Posters featuring the infamous police photos of Rihanna’s bruised face have been plastered around Stockholm, protesting the singer’s concert, according to the Swedish website Ajour.se.
So far it’s not known who is responsible for the posters, which call for the concert organizers to cancel Brown’s show because of his violent past. The posters are the latest in opposition to Brown’s performances and albums across the world.
In September, unknown parties in England adorned Brown’s latest album with stickers that read, “WARNING: Do Not Buy This Album! This Man Beats Women.” The stickers were removed quickly by the music outlet HMV, but not before photos were circulated online.
Recently, fellow musicians also took a stand against Brown. Last month, the Irish hip-hop group the Original Rudeboys turned down an opportunity to play with Brown as special guests at Brown’s O2 show, because of his attack on Rihanna.
“Even though it’s a huge opportunity to play in the 02 with a major hip hop star and a substantial fee was offered, we are completely against Chris Brown’s assault on Rihanna,” Original Rudeboy ukulele player Sean Walsh told Irish website RTE. “In addition, with our latest single ‘Blue Eyes’ being about domestic violence it goes against everything we are about as a band and supporting Chris Brown would send out the wrong message to our fans.”
